I've paid my dues in pre-hospital(Paramedic)/ER/ Max Prison Medicine and Drug and Alcohol treatment as an RN.

I've committed to never working another night shift, and alternate avenues of medicine. I would love to travel, or be located close to the Gulf.

If anyone has experienced similar to the aforementioned please PM me or respond. I am also looking for a Travel RN agency that is reputable.
Thanks
David

Seems like a strange place to get information on travel nursing. I would have done a Google search.

Wouldn’t traveling nurses get the least desirable shifts? Nights? Weekends? etc.

Moderator: What in the heck has happened to RV.NET? It was once a great resource, with answers either directly related to the question, or people stayed with-in their realm of knowledge or subject inquired. I understand if more information is required and asked for. However, these replies are non-related, answering a question with a question or just plain stupid. If one a question reply was not related, we used to PM the individual.

I still receive some rock solid advice from experienced people.

Darn it, either respond with a suggestion or input that your familiar with or shut the heck up!!

I see the question as someone wanting to full time and work as a traveling nurse. And work specifically in the gulf area meaning staying at RV parks in that area. Seems like a very appropriate question to me.

You have a very good point.

I've met two nurses on the Alcan that were doing it. They came to Alaska during the summer for six months and then went south to warmer climes for other six months. Most of the time they were working three or four day weeks. They were enjoying it.

Go to your search engine and search "traveling nurse forums". There are several to choose from. The participants comment on recruiters.
